smbfs small read tuning?

I have an application that makes hundreds of thousands of small read()s (a
few hundred bytes each time). If I run it directly on files on an smbfs
mount, the runtime is on the order of an hour. If I copy the files to my
local hard drive first and then run it, the total copy + run time is on the
order of four minutes.
The mount_smbfs(8) man page doesn't mention anything about tuning and I'm
not sure where else to look. Is there a way to enable some kind of
read-ahead cache or otherwise trade some memory or CPU for a speed boost?
